BLM to Offer E-recording for Land Record Documents


Reno, Nev.—The public will soon be able to file land record documents related to mining claims, geothermal, and oil and gas, electronically with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Nevada State Office. This new service will increase the efficiency within the BLM office while allowing customers to submit documents at their convenience from any location and receive immediate confirmation of their submission.

The public is cordially invited to attend an open house at the Nevada State Office, 1340 Financial Blvd., in Reno on Monday, April 23 at 9 a.m., to learn more about electronic recording, or e-recording, and other upcoming new services.

The Nevada State Office will be the first BLM office in the nation to offer e-recording of land record documents as an alternative filing method to its customers.

“E-recording will simplify the recording process for the customer,” said BLM Information Access and Customer Service Chief Dilene Smith. “This service will reduce the costs and time constraints associated with traditional recording methods, such as walk-ins, mailings or other courier methods.”

Please RSVP to Jessica Kleinschmidt at (775) 861-6501 or email: jkleinschmidt@blm.gov to attend the open house.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
